    Freeze in ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions until desired consistency. Slowly pour caramel sauce into ice cream, while keeping ice cream maker running, until caramel is just swirled into ice cream.

  6. STEP 6

    Serve immediately or store frozen in freezer container with tight-fitting lid. Serve with additional caramel sauce, if desired.
